The Role of the Librarian & Computer Teacher in 21st Century Schools | Time to Rethink the Role

The Role of the Librarian & Computer Teacher in 21st Century Schools | Time to Rethink the Role | Innovative Leadership in School Libraries | Scoop.it

In this age of literacy 2.0, the roles of the school librarian and technology teachers are in need of a change. When students have near-constant access to information through eBooks, tablets, and their personal devices, information and media literacy training can no longer be limited to the library and computer lab. With the new Common Core Standards implementation, now is a perfect time to rethink these roles and develop an information, communication, technology and literacy model that supports 21st-century learning

This much I know about...the best thing school leaders can be doing, day-in, day-out

This much I know about...the best thing school leaders can be doing, day-in, day-out | Innovative Leadership in School Libraries | Scoop.it

Many times in my career research has confirmed what I know to be true from experience. A little cited but brilliant book, Student-Centred Leadership by Viviane Robinson centres on my favourite issue: the golden thread from school leadership to student outcomes. Robinson’s conclusion, having surveyed the research on how leaders make the most meaningful difference in schools, was proverbial music to my ears: The more leaders focus on their relationships, their work, and their learning on the core business of teaching and learning, the greater will be their influence on student outcomes.
